DRMS Business Alliance

Durant Middle is in need of energetic volunteers to represent local businesses as a member of the Durant Road Business Alliance. Representatives from local businesses can make a difference in our school and your child’s education by serving on our school alliance. Alliance members can help in a number of ways. Some examples of these duties would be participating in career fairs, locating career fair speakers, job shadowing participants, truck fair participants, providing resources for teachers, and attending periodic meetings throughout the year.

If you’re interested, or know someone else who might be, please contact Tracey Latham, DRMS Career Development Coordinator, at 919-518-0280 or tlatham@wcpss.net

Calling All Trucks!

Our Truck Fairs provide a fun way for our 6th grade students to explore a variety of careers that require some type of vehicle or equipment. Drivers bring their “trucks” to the bus parking lot for students to rotate and learn about the vehicles, equipment, how they work, skills required, etc.

The DRMS Truck Fair is scheduled for October 17. Anyone interested in participating or have a possible resource, please contact Tracey Latham at 919-518-0280 or tlatham@wcpss.net.
